Customer Reviews

Following a two day retreat, our company participated in white water rafting and zip lining for team building. This zip line adventure was made more fun by the fact that two colleagues could zipline side by side. The guides had great personalities and were very helpful... A fun thing to do in downtown Columbus, conveniently located to everything.

Frequently Asked Questions

You do not need experience. Our tours are guided and we encourage all levels.

You should be prepared for some light physical activity such as climbing stairs, crossing bridges, walking short distances over uneven terrain, and lifting up to 10 lbs.

It is important that you dress appropriately for the weather. Please wear clothing you can be active in. Thin layers or workout type clothing is recommended.

On hot days wear clothing you can be active in and don’t mind working up a sweat in.
